Student-friendly Data Visualization Tools – Intro to CODAP & SageModeler
December 3 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Diagramming and creating models are skills that allow students of all ages to illustrate their thinking and research!
Led by Dan Damelin and team, Concord Consortium MA
Dec 03, 2023 – 10:00am-1:00pm ET, via Zoom
Diagramming and creating models are skills that allow students of all ages to illustrate their thinking and share their thought processes with others. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the diagramming and systems modeling tool SageModeler, a “free, web-based, and open-source software to engage students in systems thinking through designing, building, and revising models.” Workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore relevant phenomena such as energy flow in ecosystems, factors contributing to wildfires or the health of a body of water in “student mode,” beginning with basic diagramming skills and working towards creating a static equilibrium model. Participants will also spend time in “teacher mode” considering ways to use SageModeler within their current scope and sequence.
Cost: (Limited # of tickets!) $25 per person to reserve your spot. The first ten attendees who complete both half days will receive a stipend of $50. This workshop is offered under our ClimateSTEM Series and is sponsored by ConEd.
